Grosse Pointers are typically old money, narrow-minded, and WASP-y. We wear Ralph Lauren polos under our North Face parkas in the winter, and Reef flip-flops with Abercrombie shorts in the summer. Our weekends consist of 7-11 runs for Arizona, getting drunk in friends' basements, going to Somerset, and AP homework. Our daddy's smart and rich and works at Ford and our mommy's pretty and nice, so we're the perfect combination of looks and brains. And if not, we don't need to worry about money. There's a couple 100 grand in our inheritance, and Daddy can get us into U of M. He has connections.
The teens here are typically separated by the two high schools- North and South. North is always said to be the more "ghetto" one. It's true, but that's mostly due to the Harper Hoods trash that somehow got their way in here. South is undoubtedly the more beautiful school- but they have an actual drug issue there (hello, drug dogs?), much more than at North. But there's some rich-ass kids at North and some honest-to-God trash at South.
It's often said that Grosse Pointe is a "bubble," but let's face it, three-fourths of us will be back in the GP twenty years from now, with kids saying the same exact things.
